What is claying?
Before you start to remove the scratches and swirl marks from the paintwork, you have to properly clean the surface of your vehicle. This process is called claying. A clay bar is used to remove embedded surface contamination which still remains after washing a vehicle. The contamination could be brake dust, tree sap, bird droppings, tar, over spray and oxidisation which is not always visible to the naked eye. After using a clay bar on your paintwork, the surface will be as smooth as glass and properly prepped for hand polish and wax. The images below show a Ferrari Scaglietti which had road marking paint down one side. We brought the paint back to it’s original standard with one day of claying and polishing.

1 Stage Machine Polish
One of the best ways to take the appearance of your car to the next level is to machine polish the paint work, removing scratches, swirl marks and imperfections. This enhances the gloss by burnishing the finish.
Polishing can be done by hand, however introducing a machine polisher to your armoury opens the door to enhancements not readily achievable by hand, both in terms of correction and ultimate finish. This is called paint correction.
